Meraviglia is the Wonder of the Sea

We live in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico so this cruise on the Meraviglia was purely for enjoying the ship and the relaxation. The ports were not as important to us because we already live in the Caribbean. With that ...

Excellent cruise

Embarkation was smooth and quick. We used a kiosk to register our credit card for use with our cruise card, upon embarkation. The lines were sort of long (understandably). The kiosks were confusing and difficult ...

Find another cruise - you have been warned

Find another ship or cruise line. This was miserable. First let’s say the disembark time was over an hour late, which in turn caused the load times to be pushed back. When you have 4K plus people waiting, it ...
